Reduced Course Load
Students on F-1 visa are required to take full course load in order to maintain their status. There are three (3) exceptions to the rule and they are listed below:
- Students having academic difficulties
- Students in last semester of study
- Students experiencing illness or medical conditions
Special permission is required prior to changing from full time status to part time status; you must notify and submit the required documents to the Center for International Education. Once approved, a new Form I-20 will be issued to you authorizing reduced course load.
